COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Creamy, malty, and full-bodied, the Big Gruesome Stout is scary good. The intense, roasty flavor comes from two types of chocolate malt and raw cocoa nibs. The stout is then aged on whole vanilla beans and more raw cocoa nibs to enhance the chocolate flavors. Rich peanut butter is introduced throughout the entire brewing process to make this stout even more Gruesome.here is the deScription:

Aroma is redolent with peanut butter and chocolate, with a touch of dark fruit underneath. It pours an opaque black with a full tan head on top. Theres more fruit flavor then chocolate or peanut butter in the flavor though. An offputting sweetness fades to hints of chocolate and peanut butter. Thin bodied, but drinkable.

Can. Thanks New Belgium guy we met at Pies and Pints in Charleston, WV! Blackest of black with a huge tan head. Roasty and peanut butter and caramel-coated nuts and a hint of chocolate in the nose. Robust taste full of pb and chocolate, bitter and sweet and just a little dry. Full body. Very carbonated. pleasing and long pb finish. Very good stout but not really imperial.

Deep and dark with a thin tan head. Punchy, thin at first. But it builds some thickness as it reaches the peanut flavor. Hints of cocoa, coffee, and cherry.

Delicious and complex imperial stout. The aroma and flavor were both complex and dominated by roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Thick and chewy. The finish brought out even more flavors. Vanilla and sweer grains with just a hint of bitter dark chocolate. Good carbonation. Nice beer

joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2016
Can to shaker glass, pours pitch black. Small light tan head, minimal lacing and retention. Smells like a Reeses peanut butter cup. Taste is sweet without being cloying, nice bitterness in the background. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes long. Tasting notes of chocolate, peanut butter, oak, vanilla, dark roasted malt and tree nuts. I didnt think I would like this but I was wrong! A very tasty local offering.

Bottle. Poured a hazy brown color with a medium foamy tan head. Aromas of peanut butter and chocolate hit the nose. Flavor was peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla, and some wood notes. Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, easy finish. Very good PB beer.

Bottle shared by Matthew Wirtz, thanks! Quite straightforward in aroma, with lots of peanut and chocolate. However the flavour has an unexpected hoppy twist of moderate intensity - remains under peanut and roast, but discernible with a fruity and grassy flavour. Moderate body, well attenuated. I love these peanut beers.
